I had brisket, sausage and shrimp. Everything was delicious. Great atmosphere and staff. If you are going during a busy part of the day prepare to wait a while in line - but its worth the wait.

This is what I was looking for when I wanted Dallas BBQ. Holy moly!! Brisket - tender and moist. Pork ribs - unbelievable. Chicken and shrimp popper - why didn't I think of them. Need I go on? When you are in the area you MUST go here. Word on warning - go early.

My wife and I went with my daughter and son-in-law to the Coppell location because they told us it was good food. We got in line at 7:15 and paid for it at 8:19 pm. We had to stand in a line that wasn't that long for all that time. There was a 30 minute span when the line didn't... More

We asked the hotel clerk where to go for some good BBQ and she highly recommended this place. After a short drive, we arrived. The biggest challenge of the evening was trying to find parking... The lot was full and people were actually parking next door and walking over. We hoped it was a good sign! The experience is a... More

I hate to write bad reviews. I really do. Some people are just having a bad day and take it out on the restaurant. That said I know that BBQ and all the "fixins" are highly subjective. From the meat to the sauce to the side dishes & desserts. Being a 5th gen Texas I know what I like and... More

Recently had dinner with a couple of business colleagues and it was great. First thing you do is select your meat from a wide selection of choices (beef, pork, sausage, etc). You can see and smell the meat smoking in the large smokers, that will whet your appitite. Then you go in and select your sides from an extensive array... More

Our office went here for lunch, parking is ridiculous, we had to park about a half mile away and walk. Line was long and slow moving and while the smoke smelled good ( pits are right in the midst of line ) by the time you leave you reak of smoke. Food was good, again not great, but good. I... More

Took the family at lunch on a Sunday in August, so of course it was very hot!! Be prepared for the intense heat while you wait in line but the smell of the food coking over the smokers is awesome! I would not bring an elderly person or a tired child due to the heat. We had the brisket, lemon... More

Hard Eight is a respectable BBQ place. It is located in a business park district of Coppell.The meat selection and quality were very good. I did not see any beef ribs(sadly), only pork ribs. My daughter had the pork ribs and she thought they were tasty. The beef brisket was delicious, moist and tender. The shrimp poppers were a nice... More
